Woman in 'Finding Nemo' tank top asked to leave Michigan mall


Pewee went on to say when she was asked to leave the premises, she was surrounded by "plenty of girls" within a "one foot radius" dressed just like her.

She also shared a picture of her outfit on the day, which consisted of a Disney Finding Nemo top, shorts and flat pumps. Hannah wrote that she was so angry she almost cried, and that she was shaking when she wrote the post.

In the Facebook post, which had been shared more than 9,000 times on Monday, Pewee said that she was "so embarrassed" that she nearly cried.

Hannah explained, "I chose to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top".

MLive reported that the mall's website did not have specific information on the length and types of shirts worn, except to say "appropriate attire, including shirts and shoes, is required". But this time around it was a mall.

More than 650 comments and 7,300 shares later, Pewee's post becomes the latest example of dress code policing that tends to disproportionally target women in warmer months.

How do you feel about this woman getting kicked out of a mall for wearing this outfit?

Women are still getting shamed for the clothing they decide to wear. Pewee said. "They'd been kicked out for various reasons, all related to their attire".

"Apparently they're going to revise their clothing policy on their website so it is clearer what is and isn't acceptable", Pewee wrote in a June 11 Facebook post.

On Sunday, Pewee said in a Facebook post that the mall had apologized.

Mary Ann Sabo, a spokesperson for Woodland Mall, confirmed the mall is working on clarifying its dress guidelines. "If public malls want to have a dress code, that's their choice, but consumers need to be made aware of this dress code so we can decide whether or not we want to shop there". "In addition, security will be discussing how to properly handle situations like this", she wrote.

"We work to create a fun and safe shopping and dining destination but failed to deliver on that message for this shopper". The Woodland Mall's official Facebook page also commented on the post, writing, "Hi Hannah, we just sent you an email. We dropped the ball by enforcing a dress code that didn't take into consideration current summer trend", it said, adding that it is reviewing the code.

"If they're trying to (imply) that I'm lying, I can promise you that the outfit I posted was the outfit I was wearing". "If they're trying to (imply) how my clothes look in the photo isn't inadequate, then I never should have been kicked out to begin with".

Pewee said she and her sister visited Woodland Mall on Saturday dressed for the weather.

"I've been shopping there since I was a kid", she said.
